Title: The Waters and the Wild
Author: [livejournal.com profile] soera 
Genre:  Dark, Alternate Canon
Rating:  NC-17
Summary: The Torchwood team comprises Jack, Owen, Tosh and Gwen. They've just encountered the faeries of Small Worlds. Unfortunately, they've also caught the eye of another type of faerie, and he's rather intrigued by Jack.
Status: Complete
Length: 3
Warnings:
Violent Imagery, Sex, Torture, Implications of Stockholm Syndrome
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Probably my second all-time favourite Jack/Ianto fic, teetering right on the edge of being my favourite. It's marvelously dark and chilling, while still being beautiful. The style is brilliant and it's a very enchanting read. I would definitely recommend it to anyone so long as they're not adverse to violence and dark fics.

Title: Come Away, Oh Human Child
Author: sparking_off
Rating: T
Word count: ~9200 - split into two parts by LJ claiming it's too big. Sigh.
Timeline: Set during ‘Small Worlds’, no spoilers past that.
Characters: Ianto-centric, Jack/Ianto.
Summary: An alternative take on the events in ‘Small Worlds’, from the point of view of someone who knows the fairies intimately.

Title: The World’s More Full of Weeping
Author: sparking_off

Rating: K+
Word count: 5779
Timeline: Set in the time between ‘Greeks Bearing Gifts’ and ‘Out of Time’, although there’s no reference to ‘They Keep Killing Suzie’.
Characters: Ianto-centric, Jack/Ianto
Summary: Ten years after the death of Ianto’s mother, he returns to her childhood home to say goodbye and to be himself, away from the dangers and secrecy of Torchwood, and away from the confusion that is his relationship with Jack.

Commentary: The idea of Ianto as one of the fairies' Choosen Ones isn't something new in fandom. What is new is the idea of Ianto as a fairy- a fairy lord, even. sparking_off's Ianto is a comflicted fellow, stranding between two very different worlds, both a which are frightening in their own way, not in the least because he loves them both. The writing style itself is very subtle and soothing, and sometimes nonlinear as well, as Ianto deals with the effects of things which to the reader have no cause. If you're a fan of strong Ianto or romantic Janto, this is a story for you.

Word Count: TBC
Warnings: general spoilers for Torchwood S1, including 2x11 "Adrift," 2x12 "Fragments," Doctor Who S2 finale "Army of Ghosts"/"Doomsday," Character Death
Comment or Excerpt from fic: I can't believe I forgot to rec this fic! U.U Anyways, this is the author's take on TW S1 and (hopefully) eventually S2! It mostly follows canon events, but the author modifies it enough to be AU, especially the beginning chapters... and it's a BRILLIANT fic and long as hell! *_____*

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

When a job went wrong, go back to the beginning.

Good advice, Ianto had always thought. And no job had ever gone as wrong as completely and as spectacularly as Torchwood. How many last days at a job were filled with destruction, tears and blood? But how to go back to the beginning, he had wondered. Torchwood was gone, burned, might as well salt the earth and walk away.

But Ianto hadn’t been able to let go for the simplest and most dangerous of reasons – love. Lisa was still alive and he had sworn to save her... He woke with tears... again. Lying there, unable to summon the strength... he let his mind wander. What to do, where to go, who to trust, how to find help… And then Vizzini’s rule crept into his mind. Go back to the beginning…Torchwood…the beginning… And Ianto knew what he had to do.

Torchwood. That meant Torchwood Three. That meant Cardiff…and Captain Jack Harkness.

Status: Work In Progress
Length: Multi-chapter / ?? TOTAL
Word Count: TBC
Warnings: general spoilers for Torchwood S1, especially for 1x04 "Cyberwoman" on, Character death, Smut
Comment or Excerpt from fic: I can't believe I didn't rec this fic before! U.U Canon upto TW 1x04 "Cyberwoman" and then it's takes a whole another turn centered on Ianto and in turn, his relationship with Jack. Most likely a crap explanation, but the fic's a MUST READ!!

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Ianto Jones began his fascination with time at an early age... It all really began with his mam. She was forever telling him to count things and she taught him many of life’s important lessons in this way...

It was only a fortnight after that conversation that his tad was killed by a hit and run driver. Ianto thought it a bit odd that instead of staying around for the funeral his mam insisted that they pack all their essential belongings... and depart... that very afternoon. That evening found them... in a... single room in the B&B. Ianto had never seen her look so pale before... sparkle... gone out of her eyes... her body... stiff and unyielding...

When he woke up the next morning she was gone. Only one of the suitcases was left; the one with Ianto’s things in it. There was in addition, a small package wrapped in brown paper tied with string and a letter addressed to him in his mam’s handwriting. The rest of the room was as empty as his heart.

Title: Certain For The Dead

Genre: Angst
Rating: MA
Summary: The past never dies -- few understand that better than Jack Harkness. Twenty years ago, Jack saved a little Welsh boy from the world of 'faeries'. It's only now he discovers he's still paying the ransom.
Status: WIP
Length: 5 Chapters so far
Warnings:Spoilers for S1/S2
Comment or excerpt from fic: The first chapter of this story was posted way back in November last year, with four chapters posted up to December. The fifth chapter was posted a few days ago. As a more recent convert to the lovely that is Janto, I hadn't read the previous chapters so came to it completely new. This is a beautifully written, almost poetic, coda to the episode Small Worlds. Normally I wouldn't rec a wip, as I know how frustrating it can be to wait for the next chapter, but this one is just too good to wait. If you haven't yet read it, please do and then shower the author with the comments and plaudits she deserves :)

Link takes you to Chapter 5, where you'll find links to all previous parts.

~*~*~*

Toshiko had wanted to keep the Cyber Conversion Unit for study; a request he had almost granted. A sudden, horrible image had occurred to him, a nightmare for a man who rarely slept. In his mind's eye, he had seen Ianto, sleeping in Lisa's steel cradle, like a man buried alive.
A purely fear-driven thought, and not a rational one -- not something Ianto would ever do.

(A boy's voice, so raw and young. And long ago. "The silver girl. I see her and she makes me feel so sad.")

Jack destroyed the conversion unit the next day.

Title: Coffee Confessions
Summary: The progression of Jack and Ianto's relationship from anger to lust, and finally to something more.
Word Count: ~ 23,968 / 14 TOTAL
Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is the author's take on the back-stage happenings of Jack and Ianto's relationship. I absolutely LOVE this story because like many of you, I very much dislike the fact that much of Janto relationship happens off-screen. They show it in fast-forward; a kiss under the pretense of CPR, then *BHAM!* proposition for sex, then *BHAM!*, then an actual kiss, then *BHAM!* date, etc. I mean, I can understand that they can't show everything because of time constraints and whatnot, but that doesn't stop me from being annoyed. Anyway, this is all that in slow-motion. The slow burn of heat and anticipation is enough to drive anyone crazy! But I love it, anyway! ^______^

Comment or Excerpt from fic: These are TW S2 gap stories using BBC's Captain's Blog, very much similar the the S1 ones named "Coffee Confessions" recced HERE. It starts with Post-KKBB and goes from there!

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Jack was back.

He’d barely had time to think about what that meant, let alone how he felt considering everything that had happened. The damned blowfish taunting him, his hands shaking so badly he wouldn’t have hit the wall with his bullet, much less the alien. Captain John Hart and his bloody diamond. God, the goose chase alone was enough to frustrate Ianto, but the attacks on the team. His team, his friends. Ianto drew in a deep breath to try and calm his rising anger.

Jack was back.

And Ianto hadn’t a clue what that meant yet.

Of course, first you'll have get through roughly two chapters of heartbreak (so far... I WANT JANTO TO HAVE ANOTHER BABY THROUGH JACK/WILL, TOO!! *bawls*), so here's hoping for good news from that front as the story progresses! So, Janto trying to get Jack pregnant and failing, a person from future TW3 comes to present TW3 via the rift, an enemy of future person (and future TW) follows said future person and starts killing people in the present... Think that's 'bout it for now! *grins*

(And just for that, you get your own tag too :P) Now what to say about this fic? I really loved this story, it's a first time fic where Jack and Ianto take comfort in each other through sex. :D I really loved their interactions, and the UST! (And their conversation about Lisa really made me wish they would've added it in one of the episodes xD)And the sex was hot too, so yea. *cough*
